We can feel that long long harsh winter is coming to NY very soon….
How to stay positive in NY’s gloomy cold snowy winter???
Simple! surround yourself with your loving things!! –something makes you excited and makes you love your self!
POP Colors: We know. it is hard to throw on pop colors when you are not feeling the sun. BUT throw on pop color and fight the cold weather! Scientists proved that the bright colors help boost your energy and mood!
1. ICB KNIT SCARVES (OF COURSE)
Our biggest favorite from this season. The whole team have at least one color way. Its just so smart. long sleeve can be the best scarf, but can also just swing around.
2. POP COLOR FURNITURE
Poppy sofa, brass shelving, light birch bedside table, awkward carpets from 30s,
3. M.A.C POP COLOR POWDER BALLS
4. BATH TEA
Who said bathing in the bath is only for those who have unlimited time? Bath DOES take away your body fatigue and it is rather for tired body. It detoxes your stress and unwanted body strain and will heel your body deeply. it is the easiest way to treat your body than going to spa or getting ‘not-sure-if-its-really-good-massage’ session after work. If you are a struggling aspiring woman, treat your body and feel better in the right way.
Among various way to make your bath tea, the easiest is to use epsom salt to ease your muscle tension with some dry flowers (like lavenders), some herbs (like rosemary), and essential oils (like eucalyptus to calm your mind) .
5. RECORD PLAYER
When you hear nostalgic sound, don’t you feel your body gets warm from your heart??? Sometimes sound you hear can keep you warm and nice. and our definite favorite now is listening to some 70s record via record player. While you see people going more and more digital and tech, you can sometimes go back time and find the ‘ABSOLUTE HIT’ that are sometimes better than what you hear all the time from your little iPhone.
6. FAUX FUR
It is faux, but in a good way. Yes sometimes real fur is soft and nice, but faux fur items are also hot. That quirkiness, that syntheticness, that inorganicness is so unnatural that is sometimes SO cute. WE ADORE THAT FOIL PRINTED FUR (FAUX) SWEATSHIRT.
7. HOT CHOCOLATE
Such a cliche, but hot chocolate does make you feel relaxed and sweet on cold winter mornings or your grungy afternoon. At home, simply warm up milk in a saucepan and pop in 3-5 pieces of dark chocolate. it is not sweet but the aromatic smell of cacao makes you relaxed and happy :)
do you have your tips to beat the cold weather????
